Happy New Year! For the last two months I’ve been based in the amazing City of Liverpool! This has been the longest time I’ve spent away from London in 22 years!
I’ve been working with my friends, the incredible physical comedy theatre company Spymonkey, co-writing the score and playing music for our rather unique version of Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the beautiful Liverpool Playhouse. If you’ve never seen Spymonkey, I recommend checking them out! Think Marx Brothers / Laurel & Hardy, Family guy(?)! For me it’s been a brilliantly fulfilling artistic experience and I’m pleased that the packed houses and the press seem to have enjoyed it too!
It’s been a pleasure to work with fellow musicians Ross Hughes and David Insua-Cau, tv’s Mathew Crosby who helped write the script and my old friend, director and co-writer Ed Gaughan.
